French black metal geniuses Alcest have released details on their upcoming fourth album, “Shelter.” It will be released on January 17, 2013 (January 21, 2013 in North America) on Prophecy Productions. The album cover and track listing are also available below.
The album, which features guest appearances from Slowdive’s Neil Halstead (lead vocals on the song “Away”), Sweden’s Promise and the Monster’s Billie Lindahl and Amiina’s strings sections was recorded at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland, with Sigur RÃ³s producer Birgir JÃ³n Birgisson.
The record is “about the concept of shelter as a safe place that allows everybody to escape reality for an instant, to reunite with what we really are, deep down. Neige’s own shelter turned out to be the sea, as well as the tracks of this album, all inspired by and dedicated to it.”
